TP Renewable Microgrid

In a country of 1.3 billion people, the lack of access to affordable, reliable electricity across many rural communities in India requires a partnership to match the scale and scope of the challenge.

A Powerful Partnership

We launched TP Renewable Microgrid in November 2019 to empower 25 million Indians – establishing a new model for the large-scale partnerships that are needed to bend the energy access curve in India, and worldwide.

This groundbreaking collaboration with India’s largest integrated power company, Tata Power, is implemented in collaboration with Smart Power India and the Institute of Transformative Technologies. TP Renewable Microgrid will be the world’s largest microgrid developer and operator, amplifying the Government of India’s campaign to expand access to affordable, reliable electricity for millions of rural homes and enterprises.
